    The Shirt Machine was an excellent resource which inspired my Year 4 class. Although it was based upon explanation it provided the opportunity to write for various different purposes e.g. letter. We also made origami shirts, designed them and for home learning we asked the children to design their own shirt and make a model of the machine. The film also provided opportunities to explore onomatopoei as the machine made such weird noises. I read a poem from 'Noisy poems' to the class about a machine. they created their own poems using onomatopoeia. Although the teacher's plans were very good I adapted them to suit the needs of my class. Thankyou for such an excellent resource. from Rona Year 4 teacher
